svn info returns parent information on missing directories (Issue #3178)

While testing some subversion code for AnkhSVN 2.0 I found the following
issue on missing files.


'Svn info' on a missing directory gives back the information of the parent
directory as if it would be the information of the child.

(Most notable the 'URL' is the url of the parent directory and not that of
the missing file)


Steps to reproduce:


# svn mkdir a

# echo > b

# svn add b

# svn ci -m ""


# mv a old-a

# mv b old-b

# svn info a

(error case)

# svn info b

(ok case)


# svn info old-a

(compare data for the error case)


The first info call gives the info of the parent directory with

as path value'a' while the second info call gives information of

the missing file


Expected behaviour:

Current working copy format: svn info a

Some kind of error (when the information is not available)

Or the real information (if that is reconstructable from the parent


WC NG with information stored in one location:

The right information


(Added as testcase in the SharpSvn test framework to monitor future changes
in behaviour)
